HISTORY RETURNS TO HAUNT…

By David Vance On January 8th, 2018 at 2:49 pm

Most sensible people have been revolted by the appalling video recorded by IRA sympathiser and Sinn Fein MP Barry McElduff. Sinn Fein are moving to distance themselves from their MP and it is clear that a major damage limitation job is underway. McElduff, of course, has pleaded innocence, and made it clear that he NEVER intended to cause hurt to the next of kin of those Protestant workmen (including my Sunday School teacher) murdered by the IRA back in 1976. His protestations of innocence can be assessed against this gem.

In February 2015 the then Assembly Member sparked unionist fury when he suggested that hunger striker Raymond McCreesh deserved international recognition more than some Irish Nobel prize winners. McCreesh, who was convicted of IRA membership and attempted murder, had been arrested carrying a weapon used in the slaughter of the 10 Protestant workmen in 1976.

It seems that McElduff just cannot stop himself from mocking those who lost their loved ones at Kingsmill.

THE INTERNATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE

By David Vance On January 8th, 2018 at 2:36 pm

We ALL know that immigration without end does not put any extra strains on the likes of the NHS. Right?

AN ESTIMATED £100million has been spent on NHS translators in just five years as calls grow for the foreign aid bill to be redirected.

How many ops would that have paid for? How many extra nurses? Again, the political left never stop WHINGEING about the NHS whilst at the same time screeching about the need for Open Borders. Innit?

How not to run a Government.

By Mike Cunningham On January 8th, 2018 at 11:57 am

One of my pet hates are the F.O.B.T. (Fixed Odds Betting Terminals ) Machines, and their pernicious presence in betting shops up and down this once-pleasant land of ours. The Christian Institute echoes my concerns, and with the capability to allow a gambler with a credit card, together with an unshaken belief that the next spin will be ‘the one’ is always there, the addicts can, and do, lose eye-watering amounts of cash in a single session. The simple truth about gambling machines, mechanical (old school) or modern electronic types is that there is a bias, set into the very basic layout of the machinery’s innards, that the House always wins. A speedy review of the majors in gambling provide an interesting statistic, with the leader, William Hill, booking a massive $2.17 billions. Obviously the UK’s proportion of those earnings is smaller, but still substantial, and the tax take to HMRC is again, substantial.

I once worked in the commissioning phase of a Casino, and I can state, categorically, that the machines are as fixed as expected, the odds are set, and the House always wins. The manner in which this was shown was the view of three strong-armed casino staff members using flattened paddles, to wedge open an already crushed safe interior, stuffed with wads of cash so that ever more wedges of bundled notes could be shoved in, until the armoured bank truck appeared on the Monday morning, complete with armed escort, to transport the House winnings to the safety of a bank vault. But, as I was writing about a Government, our Government; I digress!

There has been, for years, ever since the lunacies of not only loosening the Gambling Law belt, we saw the surrender to the Gambling Companies, the vast expansion of casinos, and later the speedy avalanche both of online gambling; and the steady advance of these machines which hold a hook out, with a metaphorical carrot of winning based on the really silly idea of “It’ll be my turn on the very next spin”. My headline stated ‘How not to run a Government’ and I shall now demonstrate that very thesis.

With headlines such as “Gamblers in poorest constituencies are spending the most money” and “William Hill, Ladbrokes, Coral and Paddy Power collectively making more than £1 billion a year from the machines.”, the Government was warned, years ago, that the scourge of the  F.O.B.T.s was becoming ever larger, and that they should actively place exemplary measures in place to protect those who simply cannot protect themselves. So what did this truly caring Government do? They held a series of Committee meetings, with that same committee packed with MP’s who sat comfortably in the back pockets of the gambling companies, and decided to do: absolutely nothing! They then, stung by criticism from all quarters, decided to hold a Consultation; and asked, well, ‘What do you reckon? Should we drop the £100.00 top limit to £2.00; oh and what about Bingo prizes?’

They have the ability to Legislate, right now, and ban all those pernicious F.O.B.T. pieces of electronic excrescence from anywhere within the borders of the U.K.. But will they? Just think of all that lovely cash flowing towards the HMRC coffers which the Government must forgo if those machines are banned. And then you will see the redundancy notices handed out to the betting shop employees, who supervised, but never, ever warned a single punter that maybe he should quit, and cut his losses!

The Labour surrender was blessed by the Tories, and the tax take was too good to ignore!

Don’t get me wrong, I pay the ‘Stupid Tax’ alongside millions of others, but once a week, £2.50 is not exactly placing me on skid row, or anywhere near it.

 

THAT OPRAH SPEECH AT THE GOLDEN GLOBES.

By David Vance On January 8th, 2018 at 10:22 am

Like so many in the legacy media, I was moved to tears. Of Laughter.

What a hypocrite.

Oprah is such a special lady. She couldn’t manage to find a word to speak out about those MILLIONS of oppressed Iranian women currently seeking liberty from Islam. She wasn’t able to speak out about those millions of young girls being butchered as a consequence of FGM. Fortunately she WAS able to speak out on behalf of those many millionaire actresses who had to endure Weinstein. What a gal.

Peter Sutherland has died.

A purveyor of economic, cultural and ethnic sabotage, he was a horrible, foul man.

Foul Play or Public Service?

By Patty On January 7th, 2018 at 9:10 pm

Wikileaks has just made available a pdf of the Michael Wolff book, Fire and Fury.

I’m not sure what to think of this.  Is this foul play or a public service?  What do you think?

Our Very Stable Genius

By Mahons On January 7th, 2018 at 12:30 pm

President Trump is like, very smart. In our post satirical era he told us so in an early morning tweet. He also tweeted in a Fredo Corleone moment that he is a very stable genius.

In discussing Trump, I find that names like Michelangelo, Madame Curie, and Einstein do not usually come up in conversations with sentient adults. As to mental stability, well even the most generous observor of his behavior would be hard pressed to comment favorably on his behalf in offering analysis.

If one wishes to grasp the utter weirdness of the situation, then the name Trump is too loaded and should be removed from consideration. Imagine that the boast to being a very stable genius is made by a friend. That the friend put it in writing. That the friend’s claim was broadcast to the World. And that the friend happened to be President. Would it not give you pause? Would you think the claim self-evident, or rather that the claimant was in fact the opposite of what he claimed?

I don’t think it takes a genius to know the answer.

UNDERSTANDING THE REPUBLICAN MINDSET…..

By David Vance On January 6th, 2018 at 6:17 pm

Further to Mike’s post on the deplorable tweet by Sinn Fein MP Barry McElduff, I thought I might share this with you. As you can see, Sinn Fein MLA Mairtin O’Mulleoir though it was so hilarious he RETWEETED it. That’s the same Martin O/Mulleoir who has feigned as Mr New Belfast, the ever so reasonable face of Sinn Fein, fawned over by our local fake news media. Just like McElduff, O’Mulleoir is marinated in republican hatred of Protestant people – in these case those shot to death by the IRA.

Oh, and as McElduff falls into damage limitation mode, here’s another lovelytweet from the cretin. Here he is posing at a shrine to IRA terrorists. That’s right, IRA terrorists.

For some

ITALIAN ENRICHMENT

European politicians delight in inviting the barbarians inside the citadel. This is what then happens.
